Les Séraphins Group's story

Bashengezi is a merchant and the president of the business group "Les Séraphins". An energetic entrepreneur, he is 26 years old and unmarried. This client is a vendor of a variety of items and is a shop associate. He sets up his merchandise in a store downtown. He started his business with initial capital from his parents. Later on, he benefited from a loan from the microfinance institution Hekima. He has been in this business for three years.

This new loan will be used to purchase 20 liters of oil, a box of juice drinks, a box of lotions, a sack of sugar, 10 boxes of milk, a sack of wheat flour, matches, bath soaps, sugar, candies, cookies, iodized salt, cosmetics, notebooks, boxes of ink pens, etc. He would thus like to grow his enterprise and make a better future for himself.

In conclusion, he thanks Hekima very much for supporting autonomy among men and women entrepreneurs excluded from the traditional banking system, especially during this difficult time post-conflict in the country's east.

In this group: Bashengezi, Birachihana, Bilenge, Bahati, Kisanuro, Mabela
